Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – Assemble your editing team!

I feel I’ve seen more than enough episodes to weigh in on Disney XD’s Avengers:  Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – frankly, I’m pretty happy with it.  Sure, it’s melodramatic, doesn’t necessarily follow strict Marvel cannon and can be melodramatic at times, but it’s got all the elements of a good action-adventure show.  Well… Captain America says ‘soldier’ waaaaaaaaaaay too much.  Way too much. But otherwise, I’m pretty happy with the show – accept for this:

Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes intro lower manhattan on fire

"Uhm..."


I already mentioned
that the theme song is awful and they should have went with an instrumental like Justice League did (or Justice League Unlimited, for that matter), but wow…   what does this imagine look like to you?  Believe me, I understand that Marvel Comics in large part takes place in Manhattan.  I get it!  But does this awful image of lower Manhattan on fire really need to proceed the worst theme song imaginable?  I don’t think so.

So that’s my fix list (so far) for season 2 – ditch the singer, ditch the imagery of lower Manhattan on fire.  After that, it’s all good.  Assemble your editing team!
